Welcome to BBC Points West with Alex Lovell and David Garmston.

:00:00.:00:00.

a politician with the wind in his sails.

:00:00.:00:09.

No, no, I'm never going to answer any questions from you.

:00:10.:00:13.

when asked about his involvement with a possible wind farm.

:00:14.:00:22.

I've been trying to find out whether the Ukip deputy chairman had not

:00:23.:00:25.

been telling the truth. The fantasy life of

:00:26.:00:32.

a highly paid health boss, he lied about

:00:33.:00:36.

his qualifications. How clean is the air we all breathe?

:00:37.:00:50.

Is there anything we can do about it, stay tuned to find out more.

:00:51.:00:51.

the deer trapped on the allotments, but they're not short of food.

:00:52.:01:00.

The BBC can reveal the deputy chairman of Ukip lied publicly

:01:01.:01:05.

about his part in a proposed wind farm.

:01:06.:01:08.

was personally involved in negotiating a deal

:01:09.:01:13.

which could have earned his family ?100,000.

:01:14.:01:17.

But in a television interview back in 2014, he denied any involvement.

:01:18.:01:20.

Here's our political editor, Paul Barltrop.

:01:21.:01:25.

It's not a subject he likes talking about.

:01:26.:01:31.

This was May 2014, and I was trying to find out

:01:32.:01:34.

about a wind farm proposed for land he used to own.

:01:35.:01:37.

William Dartmouth was at the BBC for a recording

:01:38.:01:40.

of the Sunday Politics West, during which he was questioned.

:01:41.:01:44.

And did you know that land might be used as a wind farm?

:01:45.:01:47.

His party is totally against onshore wind farms.

:01:48.:01:55.

Here's how Ukip's former leader put it.

:01:56.:01:58.

It's very, very good for rich people.

:01:59.:02:02.

If you're a landowner and you get ?1,000 a day

:02:03.:02:05.

for putting wind turbines on your land, isn't that great?!

:02:06.:02:07.

To get to the truth, I went to Slaithwaite Moor in Yorkshire.

:02:08.:02:10.

The deal to put up wind turbines on this site

:02:11.:02:13.

was agreed in May 2011, just three months after

:02:14.:02:15.

William Dartmouth had given ownership to a relative.

:02:16.:02:20.

Yet it turns out negotiations over the wind farm

:02:21.:02:23.

I met the chairman of the wind farm co-operative.

:02:24.:02:29.

He had face-to-face meetings with William Dartmouth.

:02:30.:02:31.

I talked to Lord Dartmouth, I went down on behalf

:02:32.:02:37.

and he was very co-operative, keen to help us if he could.

:02:38.:02:45.

A substantial rent would have been paid.

:02:46.:02:48.

For this kind of area, and you know, I can't give specific details

:02:49.:02:52.

for this one still, but you might expect

:02:53.:02:55.

?50-100,000 per year for the sort of development you're looking at.

:02:56.:02:59.

The revelations have been seized upon by political rivals.

:03:00.:03:03.

It seems that there's clear evidence that Dartmouth

:03:04.:03:06.

has behaved dishonestly, and we expect higher standards

:03:07.:03:09.

from our elected politicians, but it also does smacks of hypocrisy

:03:10.:03:13.

because he had these conversations about potentially benefiting

:03:14.:03:15.

from a wind farm development in spite of the fact that that

:03:16.:03:19.

In a statement, William Dartmouth admits his involvement.

:03:20.:03:26.

He says his views about wind farms changed to opposing them,

:03:27.:03:29.

but it would not have been right to let down a local co-operative.

:03:30.:03:33.

it's not known what action he'll take.

:03:34.:03:38.

Well, Paul joins us now in the studio.

:03:39.:03:44.

Paul, what is likely to happen as a result of these revelations?

:03:45.:03:48.

We heard the statement, anything else from Lord Dartmouth? One very

:03:49.:03:55.

long statement all about the wind farm, which, as he points out, was

:03:56.:04:00.

never in fact built, but he says that he was ambushed back in 2014

:04:01.:04:04.

when he came to the studios and bounced into dealing with a

:04:05.:04:07.

complicated issue extending back several years. He talks about their

:04:08.:04:10.

having been a misunderstanding, but he doesn't say what that is. What

:04:11.:04:16.

are the obligations for him? We have been talking to Ukip since the end

:04:17.:04:20.

of last week, the party leader has been informed. The impression I get

:04:21.:04:25.

is that they are waiting to see just how bad it gets, how far up this

:04:26.:04:30.

goes, how wide the publicity actually it garners, and then they

:04:31.:04:33.

will take a decision. They have refused to say whether the leader

:04:34.:04:37.

will take any action, if there is disciplinary action to be taken. It

:04:38.:04:44.

comes at a tricky time for Ukip. Very difficult time indeed, they

:04:45.:04:47.

have that by-election in Stoke not long ago, which was a big

:04:48.:04:51.

disappointment for Ukip, and of course we then had a leadership

:04:52.:04:55.

contest last autumn, which was, to put it mildly, rather farcical, and

:04:56.:05:00.

then we have elections coming up, the local elections in May, very big

:05:01.:05:04.

test for them, and it comes against a backdrop of rather falling

:05:05.:05:08.

membership. They know that they have got to put up a good performance in

:05:09.:05:11.

May and they are going to show that they are a force to be reckoned with

:05:12.:05:15.

and a permanent feature in British politics. Paul, thank you.

:05:16.:05:19.

Police say four people were stabbed in a fight

:05:20.:05:21.

Emergency services were called to the Analog nightclub

:05:22.:05:25.

on Queen's Road early on Saturday morning.

:05:26.:05:27.

Several people sustained injuries - none of them were life-threatening.

:05:28.:05:30.

Officers are appealing for information.

:05:31.:05:33.

A nurse has been struck off after she was found to

:05:34.:05:36.

have accidentally caused the death of a ten-year-old girl

:05:37.:05:38.

Phoebe Willis, who had a long-term medical condition,

:05:39.:05:42.

died 48 hours after Carrie-Anne Nash inserted a feeding tube

:05:43.:05:47.

at Weston General Hospital incorrectly and with force.

:05:48.:05:50.

Nash resigned from her position in 2013.

:05:51.:05:55.

Today, a misconduct hearing concluded that her actions fell

:05:56.:05:57.

significantly short of the standards expected of a registered nurse.

:05:58.:06:02.

The police have been asked to investigate allegations

:06:03.:06:05.

described as electoral fraud in Bristol.

:06:06.:06:11.

A former mayoral candidate is claiming

:06:12.:06:13.

that senior officers at the city council

:06:14.:06:14.

misled councillors prior to last year's mayoral election.

:06:15.:06:16.

A report last month said Councillors unwittingly passed a budget in 2016

:06:17.:06:19.

that failed to include provision for a ?29 million deficit.

:06:20.:06:22.

The council says it has been open and transparent

:06:23.:06:33.

The former chief executive of a hospice in Somerset

:06:34.:06:36.

has been jailed for two years, after admitting he lied

:06:37.:06:38.

about his qualifications to land the prestige job.

:06:39.:06:40.

Exeter Crown Court was told Jon Andrewes

:06:41.:06:42.

earned more than ?1 million over ten years.

:06:43.:06:45.

Our Somerset correspondent Clinton Rogers has the story.

:06:46.:06:53.

A pillar of local society - well respected, trusted.

:06:54.:06:57.

But today, head down, Jon Andrewes appeared

:06:58.:07:02.

at Exeter Crown Court exposed as a fraudster,

:07:03.:07:06.

or as the prosecution described him, a Walter Mitty character.

:07:07.:07:09.

For ten years from 2005, Jon Andrewes was chief executive

:07:10.:07:12.

here at St Margaret's Hospice in Taunton.

:07:13.:07:14.

During that time, he earned in excess of ?1 million.

:07:15.:07:19.

But he lied about his qualifications to get this job,

:07:20.:07:22.

and later two other senior positions within the NHS in Devon.

:07:23.:07:27.

He even invented a PhD so he could call himself Dr Andrewes.

:07:28.:07:34.

All untrue, and it amounted to criminal dishonesty.

:07:35.:07:40.

Yet, in court today, his defence team described

:07:41.:07:42.

his time at the hospice as an outstanding success.

:07:43.:07:45.

Did you have any reason to doubt him?

:07:46.:07:47.

say they checked his credentials at the time he was appointed.

:07:48.:07:52.

Trustees at the time would have undertaken relevant checks,

:07:53.:07:55.

they would have looked at his references,

:07:56.:07:59.

they would have looked at his CV, and they would have looked

:08:00.:08:01.

at the qualifications that he presented with,

:08:02.:08:03.

and to all intents and purposes, they took that in good faith.

:08:04.:08:07.

Andrewes admitted two charges of fraud

:08:08.:08:09.

and one of obtaining financial advantage by deception.

:08:10.:08:14.

This afternoon, a lawyer told the BBC any lie on a CV

:08:15.:08:18.

can potentially land you in criminal hot water.

:08:19.:08:20.

If somebody is going to rely upon that information

:08:21.:08:26.

and give you the advantage over somebody else,

:08:27.:08:30.

then, yes, you are potentially guilty of an offence.

:08:31.:08:34.

As chief executive of the hospice, Andrewes shared

:08:35.:08:36.

photo opportunities with MPs and other local dignitaries.

:08:37.:08:42.

Tonight, though, he begins a two-year jail sentence,

:08:43.:08:44.

"Your outwardly prestigious life was based on a lie,

:08:45.:08:49.

You are watching BBC Points West, it is Monday evening, and Alex is back

:08:50.:09:08.

with us! Thank you for choosing

:09:09.:09:09.

to start your week with us. we've got lots more still

:09:10.:09:11.

to bring you, including... Bumping along the bottom,

:09:12.:09:16.

a bad result for Bristol Rugby, but their head coach

:09:17.:09:18.

is still optimistic. The allotments which have come home

:09:19.:09:31.

to two very well fed, clearly vegetarian deer, but now the plot

:09:32.:09:35.

holders here are saying to their four-legged friends, the party is

:09:36.:09:36.

over. Next, how clean is

:09:37.:09:40.

the air we breathe? You might think living

:09:41.:09:42.

here in the West, All this week,

:09:43.:09:44.

the BBC is taking a closer look With experts saying that

:09:45.:09:51.

in some places, it's so bad just going outside

:09:52.:09:57.

can be harmful to our health. Laura Jones is in the thick of it

:09:58.:10:00.

for us this evening. Laura, where are you? David, I am

:10:01.:10:13.

right in the centre of Bristol, and it is probable in the best place to

:10:14.:10:17.

get some fresh air next to this busy road. As you imagine, just after

:10:18.:10:22.

rush-hour, the air quality is not great. The bad news is it is not

:10:23.:10:26.

that great at other times either. In fact, this city, the green capital,

:10:27.:10:32.

two years ago, is failing pretty miserably when it comes to the air

:10:33.:10:37.

quality that we breathe in day in, day out. The rest of the West is a

:10:38.:10:43.

bit better, Bath is pretty bad, I should add, but it really does

:10:44.:10:47.

matter, because breathing dead here is really harmful to our health. For

:10:48.:10:53.

people of all ages, but the people who are really suffering are our

:10:54.:10:57.

children, with some experts saying on Sundays things are so bad in this

:10:58.:11:01.

city that just going out to play can be harmful to their health.

:11:02.:11:02.

School's out, and time to let off some steam.

:11:03.:11:05.

because this afternoon this street in Bristol is closed to cars.

:11:06.:11:11.

They try to do it once a week so that children living

:11:12.:11:14.

Of course, closing the road means the children are safer and

:11:15.:11:18.

there's more space for them to play, but it is also hoped that,

:11:19.:11:21.

by doing so, the air they are breathing in whilst

:11:22.:11:24.

This is an air-quality monitor we've brought with us

:11:25.:11:27.

It measures how much nitrogen dioxide

:11:28.:11:34.

and how many minute particles there are in the air.

:11:35.:11:44.

Will closing the road make a difference? I'm curious to see what

:11:45.:11:50.

the monitor says, I don't know, but I imagine there should be a

:11:51.:11:54.

difference. Even closing the road for an hour makes people think about

:11:55.:11:57.

whether aren't they need to get in their car if they are just going to

:11:58.:12:01.

the shops, do they need to get in the car? Even that is going to make

:12:02.:12:03.

a difference with air pollution. In fact, for the two hours

:12:04.:12:09.

this road was closed, the air was the cleanest

:12:10.:12:11.

it had been all week. In technical terms,

:12:12.:12:14.

there were just nine micrograms of nitrogen dioxide

:12:15.:12:18.

per cubic metre. When it reopened, that figure

:12:19.:12:20.

jumped to more than 50. Of course, our results are not

:12:21.:12:30.

scientifically proven and are not conclusive, but experts are worried

:12:31.:12:31.

about our children's health. Going outside in air pollution

:12:32.:12:35.

when you have asthma or other chest If you want to then play,

:12:36.:12:38.

you breathe a bit harder and breathe So both exposure

:12:39.:12:42.

in highly polluted areas as well as activity in those areas

:12:43.:12:45.

gives you a double hit. ARCHIVE: Fog, the longest

:12:46.:12:51.

and thickest on record, brings Britain its darkest days

:12:52.:12:53.

since the blackout... Over the years, the quality

:12:54.:12:56.

of the air has changed. In some ways, it's better than it

:12:57.:12:58.

used to, but in other ways Here in the West two of our largest

:12:59.:13:13.

cities regularly break WHO guidelines. The levels of air

:13:14.:13:18.

pollution in UK cities and worldwide would suggest it is a major issue,

:13:19.:13:22.

and certainly it has a strong effect on our health, and everybody's

:13:23.:13:26.

health, we all have to breathe air, and so, yes, I think we should

:13:27.:13:30.

really be calling for something to be done to reduce levels of air

:13:31.:13:38.

pollution globally and locally. As with all conflicts problems, there

:13:39.:13:43.

are no easy answers, but what we do know from our fairly simply stick

:13:44.:13:47.

measurements here is that even small, very localised actions can

:13:48.:13:51.

have a big impact on the quality of the air we breathe. Laura Jones, BBC

:13:52.:13:54.

Points West, Bristol. Well, one European city

:13:55.:13:57.

which is beating the battle against air pollution

:13:58.:13:59.

is the Danish capital, Copenhagen. Earlier, I spoke with

:14:00.:14:00.

Kare Press-Kristensen, a senior advisor on air quality

:14:01.:14:03.

with rhe Danish Ecological Council. I asked how much better

:14:04.:14:08.

the air had become in Copenhagen. Well, we really managed

:14:09.:14:13.

to decrease air pollution quite a bit in Copenhagen,

:14:14.:14:15.

it's much better today So what were the main methods

:14:16.:14:17.

that you used that perhaps like Bristol

:14:18.:14:23.

or Bath could employ? We did several things -

:14:24.:14:28.

we introduced district heating for all homes in Copenhagen,

:14:29.:14:30.

we promoted bicycling, to have more and more people

:14:31.:14:32.

using a bicycle instead of cars. And then of course we improved

:14:33.:14:36.

public transport, and thereby we limited

:14:37.:14:39.

the number of private cars. What was this idea that you said

:14:40.:14:42.

about district heating? Yes, we used large plants in Denmark

:14:43.:14:45.

producing electricity, and you can't then convert

:14:46.:14:57.

all the energy in the biomass to electricity, lots of waste heat

:14:58.:15:00.

is produced, and that waste heat, in Denmark, is used to heat up

:15:01.:15:02.

houses, and thereby we managed to increase the efficiency

:15:03.:15:05.

of our power plants So it was actually doubling

:15:06.:15:07.

the efficiency of the power plants using district heating, and thereby

:15:08.:15:13.

making the waste heat useful instead of just dumping

:15:14.:15:16.

it into the sea. Interesting - there's lots

:15:17.:15:20.

to think about, of course. When you were first introducing

:15:21.:15:22.

some of these ideas, did you find

:15:23.:15:24.

there was much resistance? Well, of course, in the beginning,

:15:25.:15:28.

when you want to make a change, there's always resistance,

:15:29.:15:32.

because people know what they've got, and they don't know

:15:33.:15:33.

what they're going to get. But after some time, people get used

:15:34.:15:36.

to using the bicycle, they get used to all the bicycles

:15:37.:15:40.

in the city, and the car owners still on the streets, they realise

:15:41.:15:43.

it's great for them as well, because when more people bike,

:15:44.:15:47.

we have less congestion. Though it's great for the people

:15:48.:15:50.

choosing the bicycle, free exercise, and avoiding congestion,

:15:51.:15:54.

and there's more space for the cars, more parking space for the cars,

:15:55.:15:57.

so everybody is actually happy. Well, obviously something

:15:58.:15:59.

any city would strive for. Kare Press-Kristensen,

:16:00.:16:06.

thank you for joining us. And on tonight's Inside Out West,

:16:07.:16:08.

Seb will be looking at the quality of air in Bath, with some surprising

:16:09.:16:18.

results, that's on BBC1 at 7:30. There is a good old discussion about

:16:19.:16:32.

it on Facebook as well if you want to have a look at that. Yes, do,

:16:33.:16:35.

won't you? One of the region's most

:16:36.:16:37.

successful breweries is making a multimillion-pound investment

:16:38.:16:39.

in the business. St Austell Brewery, which bought

:16:40.:16:40.

Bath Ales in Warmley last year, are planning to double the

:16:41.:16:43.

brewing capacity at the site with Work on the Hare Brewery

:16:44.:16:46.

will get under way in September and is hoped to have the most

:16:47.:16:49.

technologically-advanced Bristol Rugby's chances

:16:50.:16:51.

of avoiding relegation are looking bleak

:16:52.:16:57.

after their defeat yesterday. says they haven't given

:16:58.:17:00.

up hope of staying up. had given supporters a new hope

:17:01.:17:06.

of avoiding the drop. This game was the chance

:17:07.:17:18.

to move off the bottom. Come on, Bristol!

:17:19.:17:20.

Come on, Bris! Two years ago,

:17:21.:17:23.

Worcester was the scene of Bristol's painful

:17:24.:17:25.

last-minute play-off defeat. This time, they were undone

:17:26.:17:29.

in the first minute. A player sin binned

:17:30.:17:33.

and a penalty try conceded By half-time,

:17:34.:17:35.

Worcester had scored three more. The second half was better,

:17:36.:17:45.

as Bristol closed the gap - But even that was extinguished

:17:46.:17:52.

by another mistake, leaving Bristol deflated

:17:53.:17:57.

and their fans fearing the worst. It's going to be pretty tough

:17:58.:18:10.

for them to get many points out So yeah, you do fear

:18:11.:18:14.

they probably have. It's always possible

:18:15.:18:17.

when we still have points, At least we know where we stand now.

:18:18.:18:19.

Going down! We let our fans down,

:18:20.:18:24.

and we let the supporters down. It is disappointing,

:18:25.:18:27.

but there is no way until it is mathematically

:18:28.:18:30.

impossible to stay up. And come the Gloucester game,

:18:31.:18:36.

we'll be fighting for every inch. Three Bristol's remaining five games

:18:37.:18:41.

are against title contenders. may not be enough to prevent

:18:42.:18:43.

a return the Championship. A former plasterer from Somerset

:18:44.:18:49.

says he's over the moon to have won the biggest fight of his new

:18:50.:18:57.

mixed martial arts career so far. Mark Godbeer from Bridgwater scored

:18:58.:19:01.

a unanimous judges' decision at the Ultimate Fighting

:19:02.:19:03.

Championship 209 event in Las Vegas. There was a couple of times I could

:19:04.:19:21.

have had the guy finished but, you know, I stayed calm, I got the win,

:19:22.:19:25.

I took at the distance, the first fight I have been to the distance, I

:19:26.:19:29.

got the win and I am in happy, in Vegas as well, so really happy with

:19:30.:19:31.

that. Despite the win, Godbeer still feels

:19:32.:19:32.

he could have done better and says he's getting straight back

:19:33.:19:35.

into training to make improvements. 209? I'm not actually sure.

:19:36.:19:54.

Let's return to a story we touched on last week.

:19:55.:19:56.

Allotment holders near Bristol say they're planning to try

:19:57.:19:59.

to help two deer that have become trapped on their plots to escape.

:20:00.:20:02.

The animals have been stuck since a new fence was put up

:20:03.:20:05.

Scott Ellis is at the allotments for us tonight.

:20:06.:20:10.

Hi, Scott. Good evening, yes, there is this

:20:11.:20:19.

eight foot high fence around the allotments here, put up as part of

:20:20.:20:25.

the Metrobus works by the M32 just beside us, and it has trapped two

:20:26.:20:30.

deer within the allotments. Now, Metrobus, Bristol City council, the

:20:31.:20:34.

landowners, many groups are saying to the plot holders, leave the gates

:20:35.:20:37.

open and the deer will leave when they want to, but the gates have

:20:38.:20:40.

been open for quite a long time now, and it would appear the two deer are

:20:41.:20:48.

very happy being here. The plot holders are getting a little bit

:20:49.:20:50.

impatient, the plan is to try and remove the deer this weekend.

:20:51.:20:52.

Strawberry plants stripped, cabbages consumed,

:20:53.:20:54.

At first, growers didn't know what had hit them -

:20:55.:20:59.

until this on-plot camera caught them in the act.

:21:00.:21:04.

Everybody I knew was saying that last year was a bad year for crop

:21:05.:21:07.

and we were going, "Why should it have been?"

:21:08.:21:10.

It turns out we've got vandals, four-legged vandals roaming around.

:21:11.:21:16.

They're ever so quick, and they jump bloody high too.

:21:17.:21:21.

But catching sight of them is tricky...

:21:22.:21:24.

It wasn't until Di the deer hunter turned up...

:21:25.:21:33.

They kind of go around the perimeter.

:21:34.:21:35.

..that we spotted one of them hiding in the undergrowth.

:21:36.:21:41.

They're scared, you know, we've only got another couple of weeks,

:21:42.:21:44.

bit of nice weather, and the place will be packed,

:21:45.:21:46.

and they're going to become extremely stressed then.

:21:47.:21:50.

They have tried to lead the deer out by leaving the gates open at night.

:21:51.:22:05.

So what I've done is I've brought a load of sweetcorn,

:22:06.:22:08.

and I've created a trail all the way out up to the road,

:22:09.:22:11.

and what the deer have done, they've come out on the night,

:22:12.:22:14.

ate the sweetcorn, and then come back in.

:22:15.:22:16.

The plan now is to coax the deer into a horsebox at the weekend,

:22:17.:22:19.

although that does go against RSPCA advice,

:22:20.:22:22.

which is to leave the gates open at night for a while longer yet

:22:23.:22:26.

in the hope the deer leave of their own accord.

:22:27.:22:37.

Well, Steve is a conservation is too is going to oversee the operation at

:22:38.:22:42.

the weekend, how are you going to remove the deer? Well, the plan is

:22:43.:22:47.

to set up a horse box and bundling system, to try to coach the deer

:22:48.:22:51.

into the back of the horsebox with the allotment holders and a few

:22:52.:22:55.

other people, and hopefully to move them out. It goes against the advice

:22:56.:23:00.

of Metrobus, the City Council, the RSPCA, they all say that the deer

:23:01.:23:06.

could be injured doing that. There is that possibility, but it will be

:23:07.:23:10.

done and a professional guidance, but by leaving the gate open, that

:23:11.:23:15.

hasn't made any difference. There is a good potential that they could be

:23:16.:23:18.

a vitality on the main road. But they also say that they will try to

:23:19.:23:23.

come back. That is a possibility, but the aim is to regroup them with

:23:24.:23:28.

their herd. And you think the female will be pregnant? Yes, at this time

:23:29.:23:32.

of year they are pregnant, and she will give birth in May. And she will

:23:33.:23:37.

be more stressed? Absolutely, very stressed. It goes against the advice

:23:38.:23:45.

from Metrobus and the City Council, and the plot thickens, because a

:23:46.:23:49.

local MP, Kerry McCarthy, has written to the RSPCA and ask them to

:23:50.:23:53.

evaluate the safety and welfare of the deer. Back to you.

:23:54.:24:01.

Oh, I do feel the concern, that is a real dilemma.

:24:02.:24:04.

I know a couple of people who have its deer in their cars, tremendous

:24:05.:24:08.

collision. And pregnant as well. We will keep

:24:09.:24:10.

up to date with that one. Just before we go to Sara

:24:11.:24:11.

with the weather, we have to tell you about something

:24:12.:24:13.

in tomorrow night's programme. As part of our Points West 60

:24:14.:24:16.

anniversary, we've been working with Britain's last Dambuster,

:24:17.:24:19.

George "Johnny" Johnson looking into the role he played

:24:20.:24:20.

in the most famous bombing raid We asked the journalist

:24:21.:24:23.

and broadcaster Michael Buerk to find out about the man

:24:24.:24:26.

behind the headlines. Tomorrow, I'll be here in Germany

:24:27.:24:33.

at the Sorpesee with Johnny Johnson as he recounts the night he had that

:24:34.:24:37.

dam in his sights. It is the most incredible story.

:24:38.:24:51.

It is, a beautiful film that Michael is made for us, and we have an

:24:52.:24:55.

interview with them that we will show tomorrow.

:24:56.:24:57.

Let's go to the weather, how are you, Sara?

:24:58.:25:02.

Very well, we saw some sunshine today, a lovely Weather Watchers

:25:03.:25:08.

picture to sum it up, but I start the globe with everything on it,

:25:09.:25:13.

because no two days are exactly the same this week, all of it in the

:25:14.:25:17.

forecast. A beautiful picture from the Weather Watchers, showing we had

:25:18.:25:21.

a bit of spring sunshine at times. But a mixed bag of a forecast in the

:25:22.:25:26.

wake of that sunshine, a chilly nights to come, chilly start

:25:27.:25:29.

tomorrow, milder from Wednesday, you will notice the difference, but it

:25:30.:25:33.

does not necessarily equate to sunshine, there will be cloud and

:25:34.:25:37.

rain around. We have a couple of showers around just now at the

:25:38.:25:40.

moment, they are fizzling out, pulling away nicely. Behind that, a

:25:41.:25:44.

ridge of high pressure building intrigues us dry and settled

:25:45.:25:49.

overnight, but it will lead to a chilly night. Once the showers are

:25:50.:25:53.

cleared away, clear skies. Breezy early on, the winds back row start

:25:54.:25:57.

to ease away, allowing temperatures to come down, and we will see lose

:25:58.:26:06.

close to freezing. With the frost tomorrow morning, some sunshine,

:26:07.:26:08.

should be a really pleasant start, the ridge of high pressure with us

:26:09.:26:12.

for a time before the next frontal system comes in. A warm weather

:26:13.:26:17.

front, milder air, temperatures rise tomorrow night with some rain. These

:26:18.:26:22.

sunshine to start us off, quite springlike despite being on the

:26:23.:26:26.

chilly side, pleasant sunshine, late afternoon onwards the rain will

:26:27.:26:29.

start to spelling, quite a bit of it, the wind is picking up as well.

:26:30.:26:34.

In advance of the rain, temperatures in single figures, but as it comes

:26:35.:26:39.

through, it will lift the temperatures. You can see a tangle

:26:40.:26:45.

of France behind it, so the warmth does not necessarily equate to

:26:46.:26:52.

sunshine. -- fronts. That rain overnight into the start of things

:26:53.:26:58.

on Wednesday, we start at ten or 11 degrees on Wednesday, 12-14dC on

:26:59.:27:01.

Wednesday afternoon, feeling a bit milder at the end of the week.

:27:02.:27:06.

I was off last week, a bit of a staycation, and it was just wind and

:27:07.:27:11.

rain. But it is March! Right, there is an

:27:12.:27:16.

update for you at ten, otherwise we will see you again tomorrow. Don't

:27:17.:27:21.

forget inside Out West in half an hour's time.

:27:22.:28:11.

as we served life sentences in solitary confinement.
